Attention WOU students
who live in Salem!

Now you can take some of your WOU courses closer to home! Enjoy the convenience of evening classes with no commute and a helpful hybrid format while working toward your WOU degree. Our course options expand nearly every term and include both general education and upper division classes. Check back every term to see which courses you can take in Salem.

Of course, even if you’re a WOU student who doesn’t live in Salem, it may be more convenient for you to take courses in the evening. That’s great, too! We’re here to make earning your degree as easy as possible.

“Being a working adult and having kids, it’s difficult to drive all the way to Monmouth. Having classes in Salem makes it more accessible, both in the timing of the courses – in the evening – and the distance to get to class.”
